Year in Review 2016

2017 was a slow blogging  year for me due to the opening and closing of my booth. Maintaining inventory was more work than I anticipated and not having a dedicated work space complicated things. Where do I make dinner when the counter top is covered in small crafting parts with drying glue or paint? Where do my kids play when their play room is literally covered in dresser guts and other pending furniture projects? It was an experience for sure!

Anyways, despite the minimal blogging and linky partying, a few things managed to gain triple digit views.

More or less in order, here they are:

1. Reclaimed Wood Stars

 2. Blue Furniture

3. Cigar Box Checkers

4. Faux Fireplace  & more here

5. Bottle Cap Flowers

6. Door Table/Shelf

Here are a few of my favorites that didn't quite make the most-viewed list:

Map Topped Nightstand
I really really wanted to keep this piece for myself and secretly hoped it wouldn't sell but this beauty flew out the booth door fast! I've looked for more of this fabric, it was a remnant piece from ???? I forget, so I can recreate the look. So far no luck, but I'll keep looking.

Made this for my husband...I kinda wanna switch dressers with him! 
and lastly: 

This one, the broken chair bottom, I did keep all for myself. :) The bench itself sold. I'll be keeping my eye out for more broken chair bottoms, especially after seeing this idea from ML Furniture Designs.

Out with the old...and into my stash for a new makeover! Happy New Year!


  1. Happy New Year Audra, love your year-end review.

  2. You are truly one of THE most creative people I know and I always love popping in to see what you have up your sleeve! You have inspired me to stop and take a second look at my neighbor's trash. Of course, my teenagers are horrified, but I have found some cool stuff! I wish you a fabulous 2017...Oh and I can totally relate to those craft cover countertops! Cooking is overrated anyway! ;)

  3. Great inspiration here!! Thanks so much for stopping by!!
    Happy New Year to you and yours!!
